[SOLD] Wife found stash of film cams, flashes and lenses



My wife found my bag with a stash of film cameras in it. I have some lenses, bags and flashes too.

Everything is used, I am not the original owner, I will supply a good selection of photos so you can determine the condition before you buy. I take Paypal and will eat the 4%, will ship worldwide at your expense, prices are not fixed, but offer reasonable amounts only. I based pricing on what I have seen in the reviews and the buy/trade here.

I assume everyone will read the lens reviews before buying, but I can offer sample photos with a lens or body if anyone wants.


Pentax MX - in great shape, with only normal wear for a camera of its age. I ran a roll of film through it this week to test the light seals and will post as developing it. $50 -Pending

Pentax MX - in great shape, and recently completely refitted. I bought this to try having two different bodies with primes. $50 -Pending

Pentax K1000 - Great, Solid Camera which will never fail. I used it when skiing when I didn't want to have to worry about the Camera not working. $40

Pentax MZ-10 - Good body, actually never used it, the auto focus and power zoom work, but it is too automatic for me, wanted the 50mm f/2 that came with it. $60 (Yes - Typo, meant MZ-10)


Pentax M 50 f/1.4 - a solid low light lens, much talked about, every kit should have one, I have the FA 50 f/1.4 so could maybe let this one go. $125

Pentax M 50 f/2 - as good as any other on the market, solid lens. I have a second for sale, but one is pretty beat up physically but still takes solid photos, it was my I-don't-care-want-happens-to-it-lens. $50 (for second $20)

Pentax M 75-150mm f/4 - used for sports, with the focus and zoom on the same ring it is easy to focus and zoom all at once. ($110)

Takumar M42 55 f/1.8 - in good shape, solid focus, gives best colour of all my glass. $40

Pentax A 28 f/2.8 - very useful lens, gives near classic 50mm length on digital body. $100

Pentax FA 28-70 f/4 - good lens, used as my normal lens until I picked up 18-250. $100 - offer

MC Hanimex 80 - 200 'macro' - The lens says MACRO on it, but it is not a true macro, lens takes acceptable photos and would be a great lens if you want a versatile eBay photo lens. $40

Pentax M 100 MACRO - again, not a true MACRO, but this one is closer and the lens says MACRO on it, but I used it mostly for Med-tele. $200


Pentax AF260SA - good condition $20


Pentax shoulder bag, larger fits 1-2 bodies and lenses, $50

Lowepro shoulder bag, fits 1 body with 2 lenses, $50

Old Leather bag, shoulder bag, fits 1 body with 2 lenses gives that vintage look! $20

I have a quick question about the MX-10, do you mean MZ-10?

3. Buy her a new pair of shoes or two worth the same amount of money

I say you should hold on to the equipment for a few more days to take pictures of the US Olympic Hockey team.
